White Sox's Chris Sale: Throws eight scoreless for first win in seven tries
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sale (15-6) allowed just three hits over eight scoreless innings Saturday against Oakland. He walked three and struck out eight in the win.

Saturday marked Sale's first victory since July 2, ending a six-game winless streak for the 27-year-old. Now in his seventh big league season, Sale sits just two wins away from his career high set back in 2012. Although the ace's overall strikeout rate for this season sits at a career low, the southpaw has been picking up the punchouts lately. Over his last 29.2 innings, Sale has whiffed 32 opposing hitters. His next start is Friday against Seattle. He held the Mariners to a single hit over eight scoreless innings last month, so Sale could be in line for another big fantasy night when he toes the rubber next.

White Sox's Chris Sale: Allows five runs in loss Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Sale allowed five runs on eight hits over 6.2 innings Sunday against the Marlins to take his sixth loss of the season.

He struck out seven for the second consecutive start, but suffered from a series of defensive miscues (including a few of his own. The five runs were Sale's most allowed in a start since the All-Star break, and he is now 0-4 since the beginning of July. Still, the ace lefty's season numbers aren't far off his sparkling career averages.

White Sox's Chris Sale: Strikes out seven in no-decision against Royals
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sale allowed three runs on seven hits and a walk with seven strikeouts over seven innings in a no-decision Tuesday against the Royals.

Sale has now thrown four consecutive quality starts, all on the road, but has gone 0-3 in this stretch thanks to a lack of run support. He is now up to 150 strikeouts in 154 innings this season, giving him an 8.9 K/9 that would be impressive for any other starting pitcher, but is well below Sale's standards. He had a 10.8 K/9 in 2014 and an 11.8 K/9 last season, and as things are going now, he will finish with his first season in which he failed to strike out at least as many batters as he has innings pitched.

White Sox's Chris Sale: Falls victim to lack of run support again Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Sale (14-5) took the loss in an eight-inning complete game Wednesday against the Tigers. He allowed two runs on six hits and one walk while striking out 10.

Through Sale's first 17 starts of the year, the White Sox went 14-3; however, in the southpaw's last four outings, the team is 0-4. Of course not all of this can be put on Sale, but he hasn't exactly helped the cause throughout the losing streak. Over his last four games, the 27-year old has averaged three walks per nine, solidly above his BB/9 average on the season, and holds a 4.00 ERA during the skid. In his defense, Sale had one major blow up against the Braves (eight runs on ten hits over five innings) that skew the numbers, and he's actually lowered his ERA despite going 0-3 since July 8. In addition, Sale put together a string of three straight quality starts with nothing to show for his efforts. When you dissect all of this, you'll see the diagnosis doesn't have as much to do with the pitcher as it does with the White Sox anemic offense that has been a bottom-feeder in the AL for runs scored since June. Sale remains a Cy Young candidate in every sense of the term. He ranks in the AL's top five for wins, strikeouts, complete games, WHIP and innings pitched.

White Sox's Chris Sale: Takes loss in return from suspension
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sale (14-4) gave up two runs on six hits and three walks with just four strikeouts over six innings in Thursday's loss to the Cubs.

Aside from the unusual lack of whiffs -- his second-lowest total of the year -- Sale was effective in his return from his jersey-destruction suspension, but he got narrowly outpitched by John Lackey. His relationship with the White Sox is clearly frayed; with the MLB trade deadline coming up and the team under .500, it's entirely possible that this could end up being Sale's last start with the team that drafted him 13th overall in 2010.
